6 Halloween costumes for young children

Sep 28, 2013 by

Halloween is perfect for those who are young at heart because they can be whoever they want – children also love Halloween. Before purchasing Halloween Costumes for children, here are a couple of ideas:

Halloween costumes

Toy Story

Although the first ‘Toy Story’ movie was released in 1995, there have been two sequels that are popular with children. There are many characters from ‘Toy Story’ which a child could dress as at Halloween. Along with Woody and Buzz Lightyear, they can also be Slinky Dog or Mr Potato Head. A girl can be Bo Peep or a Green Alien.

Harry Potter

Since the release of the first ‘Harry Potter’ movie which starred Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, many young children have dressed as various characters from the film franchise. Not only could a Harry Potter costume be chosen but also Hermione or Lord Voldemort. There are plenty of other characters which a child can dress as at Halloween such as Hagrid and Dobby. As a fancy dress retailer typically has a large collection of Harry Potter costumes, children of all ages will have plenty to choose from before making a final decision.


A girl could be an elegant fairy at Halloween. With her tiara and wand, there are many colours which a fairy costume can have. As well as pink, a fairy costume can also be yellow and white. Young children could wear them and so too can teenagers. A mother can choose a fairy costume because an adult design could be purchased from the same retailer that also has costumes for her children.


There are many animals which a child could dress as at Halloween. A lion costume can be bought and so too can a cat outfit. If a brother and sister will be attending the same party, similar costumes can be worn.

Peter Pan

J.M. Barrie’s novel ‘Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up’ has inspired countless movies. Along with ‘Hook’ which starred Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook, and the Disney cartoon ‘Peter Pan’, there are many other movies which are still childhood favourites. Various characters from the world of Peter Pan have inspired fancy dress costumes. Peter Pan is a prime example and Wendy is another. A group of children could each dress as members of the Lost Boys or Captain Hook himself. If a Captain Hook costume is chosen, another child can be Smee. By picking a retailer that has many fancy dress costumes, parents will have plenty to choose from. As a result, they don’t have to look elsewhere.

The Avengers

The 2012 film ‘The Avengers’ featured many superheroes from Marvel comics. This movie has also inspired Halloween Costumes. As well as Iron Man and Captain America, a boy can choose an Incredible Hulk or Hawkeye costume. Available in a variety of sizes, several siblings could wear costumes of every character that was in ‘The Avengers’. As the Black Widow appeared in this movie, a girl can even be her.
